Scott Ian, co-founder, guitarist, and chief lyricist of the acclaimed metal bands Anthrax and Stormtroopers of Death, appears at Tattered Cover on Thursday August 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM. Ian will discuss and sign his new book I’m the Man: The Story of That Guy from Anthrax, his fast-paced, humorous, and revealing memoir of the band that proved to the masses that brutality and fun didn’t have to be mutually exclusive. I’m the Man is a blistering hard rock memoir, one that is astonishing in its candor and deftly told by the man who’s kept the institution of Anthrax alive for more than thirty years.

Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today that iconic Los Angeles comic shop Meltdown Comics will be hosting Executive Producer & Writer MARC GUGGENHEIM in their store on August 26th at 7:00 PM.
Guggenheim is the Executive Producer behind the CW’s ARROW, and mastermind behind the recently announced LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. When asked to describe his creator-owned passion project STRINGERS from Oni Press, Guggenheim stated:
“STRINGERS is based on a real life profession: Freelance videographers. Those car chases, shootouts, and fires you see on your local news? You can thank these “stringers” for ‘em.
One night in Los Angeles, two struggling stringers capture something on their camera that they shouldn’t have. And now our heroes have to survive an adrenaline-fueled night in Los Angeles with street gangs, crooked cops, and a rival stringer after their heads.”
This action-packed comic will span only five issues, with unique flip covers that form one cohesive panoramic view of Los Angeles, as well as a variant cover for each issue by such notable artists as Robbi Rodriguez (Spider-Gwen) and Tyler Crook (Harrow County).

Nick Offerman – GUMPTION
Actor, woodworker, and moustache icon Nick Offerman’s first book, Paddle Your Own Canoe, called on readers to put down their smart phones, study sycamore leaves, and embrace good old-fashioned elbow grease. An instant New York Times bestseller, Paddle was adored by fans and critics alike—Entertainment Weekly called it “hilarious” and praised Offerman’s “tongue-in-cheek lessons on manliness”, Parade proclaimed the book “perfect reading around the campfire” and Vulture cautioned, “Just try to resist [its] myriad manly charms.”
In his highly-anticipated second book, Offerman now focuses his trademark wit and unique literary voice on the lives of those who inspire him. GUMPTION: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers (Dutton; on-sale May 26, 2015), highlights twenty-one notable personages, past and present—Offerman’s personal pantheon of “Great Americans”—whose contributions have helped make America the great country it is today.
So who is on Offerman’s list of Great Americans? After deciding that George Washington should be first for obvious reasons, he based the other selections upon achievements he considered to be great in scope, from leaders of men and women, to activists, artists, musicians, muckrakers, and some who are in categories of their own. Subjects range from George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Frederick Douglas, and Teddy Roosevelt, to Michael Pollan, Yoko Ono, and Jeff Tweedy. Through equally hilarious and inspiring interviews (both real and imagined) with these Americans, Offerman reveals the talented writer behind the mustache.
In addition to enlightening the masses about these heroic figures whose contributions helped shape our common history, GUMPTION also considers some examples of the ways in which we Americans have used the powers of freedom bestowed upon us to become more decent as a people—and of course, some instances in which we have not. As Kirkus Reviews aptly summarizes, “Offerman smartly infuses history with humor, the result of which is an entertaining, educational reading experience.”
In the words of Offerman himself: “Please enjoy my mixtape of twenty-one great Americans, which I sincerely hope will affect you in a way that makes you recognize your own God-given gumption and react accordingly, so that we may all end up with a little more decency and several more chuckles.”
Not to be missed, GUMPTION’s elucidating, amusing, and celebratory portraits of Americans will delight fans and new readers alike.
